Types of Firestone Truck & Bus Tires for Sale in Tampa
Harvey Firestone learned the value of hard work and perseverance while growing up on a farm in the late 1800s. Thankfully, he didn't forget about this firsthand insight when he left the field. He went on to have many successes in the trucking and transportation industry. After WWII, Firestone went to bat for a "Ship by Truck" movement to help lower the price of basic goods and increase shipping times for perishable items. At the same time, he raised awareness for the nation's poorly developed highway system and lack of paved roads. Firestone helped form today's modern transportation industry. His commitment to excellence and innovation is captured in every Firestone commercial truck tire, from steer to trailer tires. Bring Firestone's American ingenuity and performance to your fleet.

Truck Tires: Steer and Drive Tires in Tampa
Now let's learn more about wheel position. The engineers at Firestone Commercial make tough tires for all wheel positions, starting with steer tires. Steer tires are arguably the most important tires on your truck. They play a big role in driver comfort and have tread designs that wick water away for improved road traction. While all-position tires can also be used on the steer axle, steer tires perform the best as they are explicitly designed for the steer application.
If steer tires are like the brains of the truck, then drive tires are the body and muscle. Drive tires are workhorses. They grip the road to push you where you need to be. Look for superior tread compounds for ultra-long tread life, aggressive tread blocks, and biting edges for better traction. Talk to your local Firestone dealer for more information on steer and drive tires for sale in Tampa. We have tread configurations that work across wheel positions and applications so you can get more out of your tires.

The average drive or steer tire? Its job is easy compared to the work of a severe service tire. On-highway tires ride on smooth, paved roads. Severe service tires, however, face urban alleyways, debris-strewn streets, and steep mountain passes. Your certified Firestone dealer has tough severe service tires in Tampa to match these harsh conditions. We know the demands that are put on high-performance vehicles. The Firestone severe service inventory includes wide base radials, all-position radials, and extreme service drive tires for both on- and off-highway applications. Whether you're working with waste or municipal fleets, you can get the correct severe service tire at Firestone.
